HELLO, JOLLY Sketch Comedy Revue to Open 11/29 at Bovine Metropolis Theater
What happens on a chairlift ride after a love profession is rejected? What if Christmas tree ornaments were alive? Ever wonder what a first date with Jack Frost would be like?
Hello Jolly explores these scenarios and many more in over 20 original sketches and musical numbers that offer a comical, relatable take on holiday happenings, real and imagined.
"Hello Jolly is a holiday extravaganza filled with music, comedy and a healthy dose of awkwardness," writer and cast member Kelly Cossette says. "And isn't that what the holidays are all about?"
A hilarious show designed to delight patrons of all ages, Hello Jolly is a celebration of common holiday themes, like family gatherings, quirky traditions and the highs and lows of the season. It depicts Christmas Day through the eyes of a 21st century dad, follows girlfriends celebrating New Year's Eve, and takes the audience along for a ride with a family searching for that ever-elusive mall parking spot.
"People are going to love how it reminds them of their own holiday celebrations. They will have that 'Ah ha, yes!' moment numerous times during the show," Cossette says. "I think that will have them laughing even harder."
Cast member Taylor Wingerter says, "This is a fast-paced, sketch show a lot like Saturday Night Live. You get to see a multitude of situations, familiar and abstract, that will make you laugh and cry,"
Hello Jolly plays Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. from November 29 through December 21 with two encore performances at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 22 and at 8:00 p.m. on Monday, December 23. Tickets are $18 (pre-paid), $20 (door).
